Gulf Shores and Orange Beach
Mobile is commonly referred to as the Gateway to the Gulf. Just a short drive from downtown Mobile, you’ll find 32 miles of sugar-white sand beaches made almost entirely of fine, quartz grains washed down from the Appalachian Mountains thousands of years ago. Whether you’re in the mood for fun and adventure or lazy days on the beach, you'll find it Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Join the frolicking dolphins on a dolphin cruise, cast your line into one of the country’s largest artificial fishing reefs during a deep-sea fishing trip. Discover history and travel back in time when cannons protected the waterways, and explore the nearly 200-year-old Fort Morgan.
